GTA Coming to the Wii?

September 5, 2008 -

Are Nico Bellic and Liberty City coming to the Wii?

Take-Two CEO Ben Feder (left) wouldn't say yes and wouldn't say no during yesterday's conference call to discuss T2's third quarter financial results. As reported by MCVUK, here are Feder's comments:

With respect to GTA Chinatown I will tell you that we’ve spent an enormous amount of time and effort working with Nintendo and developing that partnership. We’re very proud of the partnership that we have to date.

 

We continue to build that relationship. We think we have significant value to add to that partnership and that’s not a one-way relationship in any way. GTA Chinatown Wars is not even the first step but certainly an important step in continuing to develop that relationship.

 

So without commenting on whether GTA specifically whether it is coming to the Wii or not, I will say that Nintendo and Take-Two work very well together. Nintendo and Rockstar are beginning to work well together and we intend to continue to grow that relationship.

GTA Chinatown, of course, is the DS title revealed by Nintendo at E3. No release date has been specified.

Any decision to move GTA to the Wii would likely be based on technology as opposed to residual queasiness over Nintendo's "family friendly" image. After all, the Wii has already been graced with Manhunt 2. The controversial Madworld is in the pipeline.

From a tech perspective, it would seem quite the challenged to get, say, GTA IV on the Wii, given the system's limited storage capacity. So perhaps if the GTA franchise does make it to the Wii, it will be a system-specific title.

Dennis McCauley, you're a fraud.  You have a posting policy below, and yet here you have allowed some idiot to use the F word above, and you allowed the assertion here that I am a homosexual.  Grow up.

Shut the fuck up.  You break those policies with nearly ever single one of your posts.  And yet Dennis has shown you more patience than most people would have shown you.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

If a GTA game does come to the Wii, it would be about fucking time. And it is possible to put something like GTA IV on it if possible. Look at the Wii version of Dead Rising coming out.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

GTA4Wii? I'd buy it...if nothing else, just to see what all the fuss is about.

Anyone know if there's a SMG in the game(s)?

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

 

No, GTA 4 is too big for a Wii Optical Disc.  But I think they may re-port (remake and port) GTA 3, Vice City,or San Andreas for the Wii.  I did read that they wanted to make a port of GTA 3 for the Gamecube but that failed.  So I think this maybe the first time GTA3 appear on a Nintendo console (well, not counting GTA Advance).  It's possible Vice City may appear on this console also.  Same thing for San Andreas.  But it's kind of nice to see GTA3 series on a Nintendo console. 

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

GTA for Wii could work as long as they focus on it and make it as good as the PS2 games. The Wii may not have the horse power of the X-Box and PS3, but it's got more than enough to run a GTA game. But if it's a quick cash-in, there's no way it will run well on the Wii hardware.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

Dead Rising is also coming to the Wii.

But, GTA IV? Seriously? Come on. Sure it, would be a gold mine for Nintendo, but for the rest of us it would be a bad game. Like it said up there; the Wii has puny tech specs compared to the 360 and PS3.

My suggestion. Make an original GTA game for the Wii.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

Will they fix the shooting for it?  I don't know how they could screw that up for the Wii, but some companies have surprised me before I must admit.

I actually expect this game to do well if they do go Wii, but I respect the fact of keeping it to the other consoles instead, and not going the EA type route and create a GTA for Wii, GTA Street Racing, GTA Cooking with Tony....

No, actually, he's likely been praying for this as his "ultimate proof"

Wonderkarpyep. but they werent bebop and rocksteady yet. so technically i'm right :P01/28/2015 - 5:00pm
E. Zachary KnightBebop and Rocksteady have already been introduced in the human forms. They were the duo after Shredder's helmet.01/28/2015 - 4:55pm
Wonderkarpmy only complaint is no bluray boxed season sets yet. WTF Nickelodian!01/28/2015 - 4:42pm
Wonderkarpthe voice acting and story telling quality are awesome. Its like they took everything that was great about the original show, and Batman Animated Series'd it but kept it funny too01/28/2015 - 4:41pm
WonderkarpIts Awesome. Bebop and Rocksteady are going to debut this weekend. The new take is Bebop is a thief while Rocksteady is an arms dealer. took 3 seasons to get them on the show.01/28/2015 - 4:41pm
Goth_SkunkAhh! I see. I'm afraid I'm too invested in Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, The Walking Dead, and Hemlock Grove to notice the new TMNT on TV. :(01/28/2015 - 4:40pm
E. Zachary KnightMy kids love watching the 90's TMNT movies. They love the new TMNT cartoon on Nick. Yet, none of them really enjoyed the the new one.01/28/2015 - 4:39pm
Wonderkarpexecution and if there is a real wanting for something new on the big screen. There is somewhat of a wanting for new Ghostbusters on the big screen, but most people seem to agree that the new film shares little with ghostbusters beyond its original premis01/28/2015 - 4:38pm
Wonderkarpadding homages to classic via good storytelling. The new TMNT movie was just a crappy Bayformers affair that did nothing to develop character, with a mishmash of a story. Nerd Culture can accept new takes on older franchises. It just depends on the01/28/2015 - 4:37pm
Wonderkarpactually, Goth_Skunk, TMNT is a thriving TV show on Nickelodian which has enough old and new storytelling to create a thriving new product. its in its 3rd season and it just gets better as a show. The CGI Show is universally praised for being new yet01/28/2015 - 4:36pm
Goth_SkunkI propose that the new TMNT movie was not about making nostalgic adult nerds smile, but introducing the franchise to a new generation of younger fans. And some of those fans may even be kids of the nerds that grew up with the original TMNT.01/28/2015 - 3:55pm
Goth_Skunk...disservice to the franchise. But when I look at it, I see a franchise fanbase that, the last time anything major happened in the franchise, all its fans were kids. Those kids have now all grown up and are adults.01/28/2015 - 3:54pm
Goth_SkunkRemember how Escapists new EIC was talking about nerd culture being "curmudgeonly?" This ties right into that as well. These people I talked with complained about how the new TMNT wasn't being true to its roots and because of that it was doing a great...01/28/2015 - 3:53pm
Goth_SkunkTake TMNT for example: I recently watched the new movie, and I thought it was decent. But a lot of people I've talked with who grew up in the 80's and 90's on the TV show, the video games, and thecollectible toys all unanimously seem to think it's trash.01/28/2015 - 3:52pm
Goth_SkunkRe: Ghostbusters, I don't care if it's a reboot or a sequel, I'm just happy to see another Ghostbusters movie. But it's fascinating to hear people in our age demographic talk nostalgicly about the things we grew up watching or reading.01/28/2015 - 3:51pm
WonderkarpI have a GBA. I dont need to buy virtual console gba games.01/28/2015 - 3:11pm
MonteI wouldn't care about running emulators on the 3DS if nintendo would just release more virtual console games. There are so many titles they could have up but don't. Seriously, its ridiclous that after 3 years they STILL haven't released GBA titles.01/28/2015 - 3:06pm
